Frank Ducote’s folk art and paintings reflect life in, on and around the Gulf Islands and Salish Sea. People, places and things are all grist for his mill. His work is infused with wit and whimsy while drawing attention to the beauty of everyday life around us.
Before moving to British Columbia, Cooney resided in Ontario, where her first experiences were as an art and music teacher. Cooney’s skills were applied as a graphic artist employed in the greeting and decorating industry. Shealso freelanced as a graphic artist for a company in Quebec and a company in Belgium where her work is available in Europe, Asia and North America. Cooney later opened a successful studio/gallery which was ongoing until her move west.
